The MWE Gold - V2 (Full Modular) is the next step in the evolution of Cooler Master's entry level 80 PLUS Gold power supply unit line. The original MWE Gold series was created in order to offer a simpler and more affordable Gold rated option in order to help users make the transition from 80 PLUS White and Bronze power supply units more accessible. While there is still demand for White and Bronze units, the global standard has been shifting to Gold. Some countries have even begun to legislate 80 PLUS Gold efficiency as the legal minimum to purchase. This is why bringing affordable options like the MWE Gold is so important to Cooler Master. The MWE Gold - V2 improves upon the original version in the places where users will see the most immediate benefit.
Efficiency has always been one of the most important factors for users when choosing their power supply unit. While there are a range of efficiency options, 80 PLUS Gold has been the ideal choice for the last several years and continues to be seen as the standard for much of the world. The MWE Gold - V2 delivers an 80 PLUS Gold certification, guaranteeing a typical minimum efficiency of 90%.
All MWE Gold - V2 models come standard with 2 EPS connectors in order to ensure universal compatibility with all current gen motherboards. Whether you get the minimum wattage level at 550W or the maximum at 850W, you never have to worry if you'll have enough connectors to use your ideal components.
The MWE Gold - V2 has been upgraded with an HDB fan. This fan bearing delivers quiet and effective cooling with a long lifespan, allowing users to get the most out of their PSU for years to come. A number of additional measures have been applied to the original MWE Gold in order to reduce sound output and ripple noise for a demonstrably quieter user experience.
While the original MWE Gold had a maximum operating temperature of only 45 degrees Celsius, the MWE Gold - V2 has improved upon this by delivering an additional 5 degrees to that limit. With this model, users will be able to push their power supply to 50 degrees Celsius safely. Such a high threshold greatly improves what's possible to accomplish with your PSU and your system in general. Overclocking and other high intensity applications become way more accessible when the system's power supply can take the heat.
The full modular version of the MWE Gold - V2 comes with a set of flat black cables that can be customized to each user's individual needs. With a full modular setup, each system only needs to include the cables required for its individual components. The rest of the cables can be put aside for future upgrades and maintenance. This unused space within the chassis allows for reduced clutter and better airflow, thereby improving your system's overall cooling. Full modular cables carry an aesthetic benefit as well by reducing the amount of space needed within the case when powering the system.
